Alstom will participate in policy-related projects on transport infrastructure and services, as well as transport policy-related projects on shared mobility and the decarbonisation of transport, as a member of the International Transport Forum’s Corporate Partnership Board, the organisation’s platform for collaboration with the private sector.

As a promoter of sustainable mobility, Alstom develops and markets systems, equipment and services for the transport railway sector. Alstom offers a complete range of solutions (from high-speed trains to metros, tramways and e-buses), passenger solutions, customised services (maintenance, modernisation), infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions.
